Before School Care

We offer care starting at 6:30 a.m. in Village Hall for students in grades 1 – 6 and at the ECDC for kindergartners.  Breakfast is not available through the District, but children may bring their own.  For students that bring a breakfast, the “breakfast club” eats at 7:15 a.m.  Following breakfast, we escort the children to their respective playgrounds.  Students enrolled at CMS will walk to the middle school at 7:45 a.m.


After School Care Activities

For the children in first - sixth grades, they participate in a variety of daily indoor and outdoor activities through our "Kids Club Connection."  Each day will offer an activity club for the enjoyment of the children.  Please see the separate page regarding the Kids Club Connection.  We also offer a homework club on Mondays - Thursdays.

At the ECDC, the kindergarten program offers an age-appropriate curriculum based on arts and crafts of the season, story time, music, and games.


After School Check In/Check Out

Kindergartners
The children walk to the Child Care classroom at the ECDC with their teachers or are escorted by Child Care staff.  They are then signed in by the staff.

 
Grades 1st-6th
The Child Care staff checks the children in on the Sixth Street playground at Village Elementary School when they are released from school.  The children stay at that playground until 3:00 (MTuThF) and 2:00 (Wed) when they walk with the staff to Village Hall for the scheduled activities of the day.  CMS students will walk to the playground or Village Hall to sign-in.

Snacks
Snacks are not provided at Child Care.  Please pack an extra mid-afternoon snack for your child.

Parent Pick Up
All children must be signed out when they are picked up.  For the students at Village, the sign-outs are done through Village Hall located on H Avenue.  Parents will sign-out the kindergarten students at the ECDC classroom.  If you are going to have someone else pick up your child, please call us or write us a note.  The children will not be allowed to leave Child Care without your prior permission!
